claiming his death proves they were absolutely justified in passing legislation banning u.s. nationals from adopting any more russian children. they did that at the end of last year. partly in response to u.s. legislation, targeting russian human rights abusers. but also because of concerns held for a long time here by russian officials who say they are worried about the way russian orphans are treated in the united states. supporters of the adoption ban claim since the 1990s 19 other russian children have died after being adopted by americans. the russian government says it is very concerned about the welfare of russian orphans and says 60,000 have are been adopted over the last 20 years. the adoption ban is one of the key reasons why relations between the united states and russia are the worst that they have been in a long time. a line of politicians here and officials have responded to the death of this 3-year-old boy by effectively saying, we told you so. phil black, cnn, russia. >>> european scandal over mislabeled meat keeps getting big der. details of the latest recall foods where tr

it an active criminal investigation. now here's why it is so interesting. the u.s. justice department you may remember spent years investigating armstrong for drug distribution, fraud and conspiracy. but then a year ago it closed the case without much of an explanation. it surprised a lot of people at the time. even some of those involved in the investigation because many were convinced that they had the goods on armstrong. many thought armstrong's admission that he doped during his prime years of cycling might lead to new criminal charges. he's denied doping for years, even under oath. we now know that the federal investigation never ended or it's been restarted. the big question tonight is, could lance armstrong actually go to jail? betsy andreu is with us tonight. her husband was a teammate of lance armstrong. they testified in the trial. jeffy tubin also joins me. you heard him say he wants to cooperate with the investigation. they're giving him more time. what do you make of that? >> i think it's a good thing. it's about time that lance came forward. i think he has good people telling hi

discharged from the u.s. navy reserve earlier this year. in fact, just a short time ago, after serving in several overseas jobs. basically as a security officer. he was a lieutenant. he had weapons training in the navy. but not a commando, not a navy s.e.a.l., this was basic security work. nonetheless, he had two awards critically. the rifle marksman ribbon, and the pistol expert medal. this meant he had some qualifications in shooting at some expert level at particular distances or ranges. i think, though, very clear we should also understand that he had expertise through his service as a police officer. many people, many police officers serve in the military reserve, and they have a lot of weapons expertise due to all of that. still, very concerning, obviously, because of his background. >> were you able to learn anything about did the military have any information on his mental health? >> reporter: well, this would be a matter of privacy concerns. but at the moment, they wouldn't publicly release that. at the moment, very preliminary, there is no indication of that, because he was h
